In the news this morning, the National Hockey League announced on Tuesday that the League will likely not be participating in the 2018 Winter Olympics.  NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said that with negotiations on Olympic participation at a standstill, people should assume the league will not be sending its players to the 2018 Pyeongchang Games in South Korea. The NHL's main issues with Olympic participation center on a need for it to shut down its season for 2-1/2 weeks, along with concerns about player injures.  NHL players did compete in the 2014 Olympics in Sochi.
